The Reno Gazette had an article about the Independent American Party.
Independent American Party State Chairman, John Wagner, testified this morning, April 11, 2014 at the Nevada Legislative Building in Carson City. He testified on behalf of the IAP before the Nevada Division of Child and Family Services which held a hearing in Carson City and in Las Vegas.
The hearing was about whether or not to deny foster parents the right to have guns in their own homes. This effectively denies foster parents the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. This same proposed rule would allow police officers to carry firearms holstered on their persons when off-duty and in the presence of their foster children, thus creating a class of “super-citizens” for foster care purposes.
“Foster parents are just as responsible as any other parent. None of the current shootings have been by foster children. With recent violent acts, will we be forced next to outlaw knives, baseball bats, golf clubs and hockey sticks,” stated John Wagner, State Chairman Independent American Party.
“After you take away the Right to Keep and Bear arms from foster parents in order to make it equal, next government will have to take the right away Second Amendment rights from all parents and then from everyone else. This is a bad precedent,” continued Wagner.
“The state of Illinois recently passed a Concealed Carry Weapon law and since then, crime has gone down, even in Chicago. It is safer for all of us if more law-abiding citizens have guns in their homes, not fewer,” concluded John Wagner.
In addition, on Wednesday April 9, 2014, Chairman Wagner represented the Independent American Party at the Conservative Talk Lunch in Reno. He spoke about his own candidacy for State Assembly District 40 and handed out alerts to help Rancher Cliven Bundy who under assault by the BLM.
